I have some Ronals and was wondering if it might be possible for me to make this work.....

They cleared the Mulins/CSA wheels I used to have and they also clear the factory Mustang 10 holes fine.

What's the offset on the Ronals?

Regardless, a test fit is the only sure test.

I should be more specific. I am curious if the the 300mm PBR swaps fit.

I believe they are ET28...

I don't think ANY 15" wheel is going to clear with the 300mm rotor setup.

I'm running 15" ET 30 Panasports with the BAT kit ,PBR's with SVT Contour rotors and they just fit . Haven't had a problem.

Are the fins on the backside of the PBR calipers required for cooling? I'm tempted to grind those things off just for this purpose when I upgrade my own brakes for the stock 15" wheels...

...then again if Brad already said it's a no-go, perhaps it's no good in asking. :roll:

(Still hoping to find a success story out there)
